How do you teach kids to dig deeply into nonfiction, to really grapple with the text, and to identify key elements such as the author’s purpose, the main arguments, and the evidence the writer uses to support his or her claims? There’s a lot that goes into closely reading nonfiction, and this blog series explores some of the biggest challenges that kids encounter, including “finding the proof,” really understanding text features and more.
